. that may happen day after tomorrow. that is damaging america's faith in congress. that's damaging what the senator from california said was one of the basic principles of this body. there are already filibuster rules. if used, they would make those objecting spend time on the floor explaining themselves, actually talking. that already exists. and in a very limited way, each senator has the right to one hour of debate during a filibuster. one hour. they can have other people cede their hours to them. at any point if there isn't somebody on the floor to take more of that hour, the presiding officer can end that part of the filibuster. so there are already ways to shorten the delay involved, but they aren't being used. using current rules would be much better than breaking the rules for the first time in order to change the rules. we've never done that. it's been threatened once before. it didn't happen. i hope it doesn't happen during the time that i'm in the senate. breaking the rules to change the rules is not the way of the senate for the history of the senate. i know there are amendm
